Most theories of leadership focus on high-income countries, with comparatively little research on leadership in low-income countries. In response to this knowledge gap, the Wellcome Trust commissioned research on pathways to leadership in African countries and India, to find out how these may vary and to better understand how diverse research ecosystems can support the development of excellent leaders.
The work in Africa was conducted by Vitae and commissioned by Wellcome and the African Academy of Sciences. The work in India was conducted by The INCLEN Trust International and commissioned by Wellcome in partnership with the India Alliance.
